Dr. Wallace Guerrant, Jr. was born in Lexington, KY and grew up in nearby Winchester. He attended Transylvania University graduating in 1987 with degrees in Biology and Philosophy. At that time, both of his parents were Opticians and his wife an Optometrist (Dr. Nancy Guerrant) so Optometry seemed like the obvious profession for him to pursue.
Dr. Guerrant earned his doctorate from the Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago in 1991. Since graduation, Dr. Guerrant has practiced in various parts of Central Kentucky including 15 years in Mt. Sterling. He takes a special interest in treating glaucoma. He and Dr. Nancy have four children: Wallace, III 24, Joanna 21, Russell 19, and Daniel 17.
